This upcoming season will only be the NBA’s third since the retirement of Yao Ming, but to me, it feels a whole lot longer than that. So much has happened since that point, like the Big Three coming together in Miami, Kevin Durant emerging as the number 2 player in the game, and the Rockets ...The post Will Yao Ming Get Into The Hall Of Fame As A Player? appeared first on The League News.

Earlier today, the NBA officially announced their partnership with former Houston Rockets center Yao Ming to start the first ever “NBA Yao School” in China.
For those of you asking, what is “NBA Yao School”? I’ll let the official press release detail that news:
The NBA Yao School, launching in February 2014, will provide after-school basketball training and fitness programs...
A popular bit on the Internet of late appears to be taking photos of former NBA center Yao Ming standing next to people who are shorter than him so we can all marvel over how a man who stands 7’6″ can make even a person of average height seem short by comparison. Some examples include […]The post ‘Yao Ming is Taller than People Who are Shorter than Him,’ Part 3: Muggsy...
Omri Casspi has done a lot of good in a short time with the Rockets.
But he isn't satisfied and probably never will be. The small forward spends a lot of time looking at everything he has done wrong and working on the things he can correct.
He has been an offensive spark for the Rockets in all three preseason games this season averaging 16.7 points off the bench.
Dwight Howard dropped into the low blocks and waited. And waited. And waited.
Eventually the ball found him as it has reliably through the preseason’s first four games. But the portions of the Rockets’ offense built around him never looked right. Passes have come his way but often too late. Some were on time but missed their target.
None of this was considered to be much of...
Just trying to feed the needy T…Houston Rockets All-Star James Harden is always a gracious host when friends visit H-Town.

Just days after returning from an eight-day trip that included stops in Manila Philippines and Taipei Taiwan the Rockets returned to preseason action hosting Orlando.
Despite some sluggish moments and the lack of two starters the Rockets defeated the Magic 108-104.
Jeremy Lin went home before the game feeling sick. Chandler Parsons took the night off.
James Harden and Dwight Howard...
Houston Rockets stars Dwight Howard and James Harden visit with the current and former UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez and Junior Dos Santos. Dwight may be a physical specimen but judging from how much he complains on the court I don’t think he would have the toughness to last thirty seconds in the Octagon.
See why Andrew Craig didn’t play basketball in his latest video...
This is something Houston fans can get used to. I know Dwight enjoyed this dunk against his former team. Follow Mark Gunnels @RealMarkGunnels Facebook.com/FullScaleSports Twitter: @FullScaleSport
I’m no coward T…Man this guy really lives in his own world. Houston Rockets big man just unleashed two paragraphs offensive to literally everyone named in them. Howard said he was disappointed that, last February, after the Magic acquired Tobias Harris in a trade, the team granted Harris’ request to wear No. 12, Howard’s old number. “I just think that despite whatever...
On Wednesday night, Dwight Howard and the Houston Rockets will face the Orlando Magic in a preseason game.
It will be Howard’s first game in Orlando wearing a Rockets No. 12 uniform. Howard, the face of the Magic for several years, and a future Hall of Famer, will return to the arena he built, upset at Magic’s brass.
According to the Sun Sentinel, Howard is still upset that...
Dwight Howard faces his former Magic team Wednesday at Toyota Center for the third time since forcing his way out in a brutal will-he, won't-he drama of his Dwight-mare decision.
Magic fans and the Magic organization are still largely recovering from that. The team is rebuilding and working its way from the bottom -- literally after finishing last year with the league'...
Dwight Howard spent eight seasons in Orlando, going from franchise hero into one of the most reviled players in the league.
And for that, he thinks his No. 12 jersey should be retired by the Magic. Really Dwight? Don’t you think it’s a little bit too early? Also you have to make a HUGE presence on the team or franchise to have your number retired in my opinion.

Wednesday night, the Magic will get their first look at Dwight Howard in a Houston Rockets uniform.
Even though a year has passed (and a whole franchise) since Howard was on the Magic, he still casts a large shadow on the franchise. It is hard not to think of Howard when thinking of the team's history and how far the Magic have to go to get...
